The 14th and 15th Karmapas

This week, senior meditation instructor Cathy Lhamo Jackson continues our series on the Lives of the Karmapas, taking a look at highlights from lives of the 14th and 15th Karmapas, their teachers and students. One of the most important developments of the time was the founding of the Rimé movement by Jamgön Kongtrül Lodrö Thayé, Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, and Chokgyur Lingpa. This was a non-sectarian movement, used to find common ground among the major schools of Tibetan Buddhism, which laid the foundation for the survival of the teachings as many Tibetans eventually were forced to flee their homeland.
